And now, for the first time inside this no-nonsense guide, he has something to say to you. If you're buying or selling property, you need help from someone who knows what they're talking about. Forget the spiel from agents and hype from the media – read this straight-talking book and discover how to get your foot in the door, find a bargain, sell for a tidy profit or find the home of your dreams. Do you really know how to make money from real estate? Do you know what your house is worth? Do you know the pitfalls of buying a house based on aesthetics? Do you know how to establish a winning tactic for bidding at auctions? Do you know what the agent is thinking?
